Our little 5 year old!
Not sure that we could have packed in much more for Annika’s 5th Birthday Weekend Celebrations! It just so happened that there were a few community events happening on her special weekend, so we were able to celebrate in many ways!
The Guelph Public Library had a family-fun fundraiser, from there were went to a cross-fit challenge at the Clair Road Emergency Medical Services Centre that was raising money in memory of Jennifer Kovacs (a young police officer who lost her life on duty earlier this year). Sunday morning we all ran the Run for the Cure, and then off to Annika’s Birthday Party at the Y with 12 of her closest family and school friends. Today, she gets to feel special at daycare and got to choose the homemade dessert she gets later today, and then home for a family dinner celebration!
She sure is our precious, sweet little girl who is always so thankful and grateful for the little things in life – she helps us all to keep life in perspective. We love her so very much! ♥
Our Sassy little superstar birthday girl!
